Yes the old Dolby Surround Tools for TDM, but Minnetonka was perfect too!
The newer Plugins only support DPL2 and with upgrade Pro Logic IIz, i miss the original DPL-1 Option for Encoding and Decoding!

I've still got the DPL1 option available, but how many people are ever going to decode that these days? And it trashes your stereo image if it's not decoded. I'm guilty of a lot of retro nostalgia, but DPL1 is something I'm glad I did and know what's going on under the hood, but I'm OK with letting it go.

No! :)

DPL1 has the best channel separation from all Dolby Decodings for 2.0 sources, the reason is the SR Channel frequency limit to ca. 7khz and some other tricks.

In some cases, like to make a basis for upmixing or so on, its much better than DPL2.

Because of this and some other reasons, I want or need both decodings for selecting to make the best decoding for several sources, sometimes DPL1 or sometimes DPL2! :)

In the current version from minnetonka dolby tools are DPL1 available? Because I dont see it on the screenshots?
